In particular, the control changes search behavior to return the actual entry
for a referral entry, instead of returning a searchReference. In the other
overlays, e.g. dynlist, the control changes search behavior to return the
actual entry, instead of trying to expand the list of dynamic members.
For translucent, the control should return the actual local entry, instead of
trying to return the result of merging local and remote data.
The use case is the same as for the other overlays - make sure we get actual
entries as they are stored in the server, as opposed to some dynamically
transformed version of the entries.
